2018 Eden Dreams: Dreams of the Rare Pearl

Last Saturday evening we saw another outpouring of support from the greater-Princeton community. As one component of our annual effort to raise over $1.2 million for our programs and services, this event attracts local business leaders, corporate citizens, and individuals who embrace our mission and have established long-standing partnerships with us through 30 years of Eden Dreams. Please join us in recognizing community member of Eden’s board of trustees Gahan Pandina and Eden friend Scott Kent for their outstanding contributions.

2018 marks Eden’s 43rd year of serving the autism community through its nationally recognized school for 3 to 21 year-olds; employment and residential programs for adults; and early intervention, professional development, and consultation services. Proceeds from this year’s event will support Eden’s continued education and retirement programs for adults with autism.

Each Eden Dreams event has represented a time or place that can be visited only through one’s imagination. Guests have been transported to Atlantis, Camelot, even the Lumière screening room – making this one of the most talked about and highly anticipated events in town. This year’s theme did not disappoint. Unique elements of Eden Dreams: Dreams of the Rare Pearl included a nationally respected pearl expert courtesy of Hamilton Jewelers and a renowned Chinese calligrapher, as well as performing artists in dance and music. Commemorative pearl bracelets were hand-strung by Hamilton Jewelers in celebration of the event’s 30 years.
